The latest publication, available for purchase online.






there only exists 100 physical copies of this photo magazine in the bound version , another ten exist in the hand made version , predominantly in the berlin area , and belong to people instrumental in encouraging me to pursue the idea of independent publishing. i out this first magazine when i was broke , ie , cashless , the very real necessity was the initial spark ….

last year , i made a hundred copies in cape town , of which  i posted some to berlin , basel , oslo to mention a few. this in fact was how Reality conspired to pay for my wedding!!

i am working on printing the next issue , one year later  i know …. but i hope it will be worth the wait…

i will post a little preview when next i have the opportunity .




peace and blessings be with you.

it seems that contrary to my thinking , one cannot add posts to a new page??? , and until i figure out how to do this i will have to keep editing this page .

as promised … here is a sneak preview of the next mierkat….

mierkat jan 09...

mierkat jan 09...

as i write , mierkat jan 09 is in production , and yes , i do realise as i have recently written that we are well into february …. i just could not bare the thought of taking longer than 1 year to publish the next mierkat , so i would ask everyone to enter a contract of extended disbelief , ie to not believe that mierkat is slightly late…!


thanks to everyone who visits the site , and a special thanks to my liefie , who has been literally working from sunrise to sunset the last couple of days and still somehow finds the time to comment !
